Blade Runner sequel in preparation

Movie industry sources are abuzz with rumors that Ridley Scott is in preparation to make a sequel to his 1982 cult sci-fi classic Blade Runner. In fact for one day the Guardian was reporting that Harrison Ford was "in talks" to reprise his role as Deckard. The following day the Guardian retracted that report, but still insists Scott is looking for a story for the Blade Runner sequel.
   Of course at the moment we're eagerly awaiting Ridley Scott's return to sci-fi with Prometheus, a film "set in the same universe" as Alien, his cult 1979 space-horror. Prometheus, which stars Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender, and opens in June.
   
As exciting as Prometheus looks, and I'm excited, a new Blade Runner could be awesome - Alien was a very cool movie, but Blade Runner was much cooler (IMHO).

Two questions for you? [answer in the comments of this post and you could win a free copy of The Universal Machine]

 -1. Was Deckard human or a replicant? Please explain your answer.
 -2. What is Ridley Scott's connection with Apple Computers?
